2016 Honda Fit
2016 Toyota Yaris
Many people often overlook smaller vehicles like the 2016 Honda Fit and the 2016 Toyota Yaris, passing them off as vehicles that couldn’t possibly be as powerful or as fuel-efficient as larger models. To disprove this theory, we’ve pitted these models against each other to show that they can in fact be powerful, efficient, roomy, and jam-packed with features. But which one will be the superior choice for Billings and Lockwood drivers looking to downsize without compromising? Continue reading below to see which vehicle comes out on top.
While each of the vehicles get better than average fuel economy, the Honda Fit LX gets a whopping 33 mpg city and 41 mpg highway* when equipped with a CVT, while the Toyota Yaris only gets a maximum of 30 mpg city and 37 mpg highway.
The Honda Fit is also able to outperform the Yaris in terms of engine power as well. While the Yaris sports a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine with up to 106 hp and 103 lb-ft of torque, the Fit comes with a powerful direct-injection engine that produces up to 130 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque, proving that smaller doesn’t mean weaker.
Safety features are an incredibly important part of any vehicle. While the 2016 Toyota Yaris incorporates standard safety features like LATCH, whiplash-injury-lessening technology, and the Star Safety System, it lacks many advanced technological safety features that many have come to expect in a vehicle these days.
The 2016 Honda Fit, on the other hand, is no stranger to safety, especially when it comes to increasing safety with technological additions. The Honda Fit boasts safety features such as a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines, Eco Assist with ECON button, Honda LaneWatch, HondaLink, push-button start, tire pressure monitoring, and an ACE (advanced compatibility engineering) body structure.
